Maybe the morning after the night before is not the best time to persuade DD1 that her services are required to model one her completed tanks ... BUT, hey, why else were mothers put on earth for;) Anyway, she grudgingly obliged - but issued a stark warning that her face was not to be revealed!! This determined request was not to maintain her anonymity; nor because she is mortified that the hip world of the under 19's are confronted by the realisation her mother is a knitter ...
Freedom Spirit 455 pattern book
Longer version tank top
Shade 503 Force

No, the crisis that evoked her command was ... she had NO make-up on!! Bless her, I've obliged anyway as I feared for my well being and household harmony otherwise;)
And a close up of the yarn!

Thank you from both of us;) I'm a little biased (aren't we all at times about our offspring), but am really proud of her and the lovely young woman she's becoming - even if the besom has legs to die for;)!!

It looks great. It's funny that when we're 19 and gorgeous (as your DD most likely is) we worry about being seen without make up we don't need. Now I'm old(ish) and need make up -- I find it much easier to leave the house without it!

lol I know what you mean, sooo - if I wore make up now folk would think I was off to an interview! I prefer the natural look now;) ... which really translates as I'd rather have an extra 10 minutes in bed rather than in front of a mirror!

elle, I hope you've re-found your mojo to finish of your OH's jumper. That means you can then cast on other for yourself!

Aren't 15 year olds a joy, Liz;) I sometimes reckon that adolescents are the best contraception known to mankind! And the joys of new partnerships ... OH and I have 5 between us and so far always have had TWO 'doing adolesence/our heads in' at the same time!! (They're 19, 18, 15, 13 and 10)

Thank you too, Seahorse... If I have a LOT more success with the GI diet, I'd happily cast on another for me

Ooh nice tank top, I've bought some yarn for the Shell Tank from NG's Knitting Nature as I'm a big fan of tank tops. Your daughter is lucky to have her own personal knitter :)

What a lovely top! Your daughter looks fantastic in it. The nonchalance of the young.... but I thought (according to my daughters) that knitting was now 'hip'?
